Gold Vermeil - what is it?
Being the jewelry lover that you are, you've probably seen jewelry labeled gold vermeil, vermeil, or 18-carat vermeil. But what does it mean?
Morocco Ear Climbers, hand-crafted in Bali using recycled 18-carat gold over 925 sterling silver

The silver base is then covered using a thick 2.5 microns of real gold using the process known as electrolysis - the passing of a direct electric current through melted gold which binds the two components together.
